Hive inspection

Both hives looking great. While originally C seemed the strongest, A is better developed and has noticeably more traffic coming and going. But both doing well. Added second super to each.

Leading up to this inspection, I seriously feared that Hive C was almost dead. I didn't see a lot of activity and I thought I saw LOTS of dead bees when peering in through the opening. In fact, it turns out this hive is VERY healthy. What I was seeing was good burr comb built from the bottom of the frames. That comb was covered in bees that were basically motionless as the temps where cold and they were busy doing whatever bees do. Such a relief. This is my fourth year as a beek - you'd think I would have known better and saved myself some sleepless nights.
